By the Book: On Animals in Fiction

With World Animal Day falling on the 4th of October, we pay tribute to the many books and stories that feature animals, and talk about the way these books emphasise our complex relationships with them. Joining us is Macaranga editor Wong Siew Lyn, and the books we discuss include the Panchatantra, folk tales from East Malaysia, Charlotte’s Web, Moby Dick, White Fang, and Black Beauty. In Footnotes, we discuss the recently announced change of date for this year’s Booker Prize, and what it says about the dynamics of the English-language publishing industry today.
